KCPS Begins to Enact the KCATA Student Pass Program

On Tuesday, November 20th. KCPS began enacting the KCATA Student Pass Program. The Student Pass offers free and unlimited rides on public buses to KCPS high school students. KCATA staff visited Central Academy of Excellence for a special “learn to ride” event. Students who had completed the sign-up process for the initiative received their complimentary bus passes. KCATA staff then led the students through a program to teach them bus-rider protocols and how to use the KCATA system so that they can get where they need to go. About 300 students have sign-up so far to receive bus passes. This is a great example of how we are “all in” for our students!
